“These Dill Pickles are just simply fabulous! Very simple to make and the taste reward for the 8 week waiting period is unbeleivable! I like to add or subtract garlic as we see fit! Also I usually add a few jalapeno's or habenero's to a few quart's to satisfy our spicy cravings. Please note that it is important to soak your pickling cucumbers in icey water for a couple hours prior to starting the canning procedure. Finally, make sure that your brine is at a full boil when pouring over your cucumbers.”
